For Money or Love

October 5th, 2005 at 08:25 am

This is going to sound like such an awful entry. but I figured it would be the most appropriate/annonymous place to discuss such a topic.

I am in love and live with my boyfriend of 3 years. I work in academic research and he manages his families 3rd generation 75+acre orchard for work. We both live and commute 30 miles to our respective jobs (i work in the city, and he works in the country). And there really are NO jobs of my nature near his work. And, we will be lucky if he EVER makes more than 45K/year. There is obviously no mobility for our future because he plans to stay at the family farm for the rest of his life. And I am scared and stressed out about our financial future-scared that we will forever be in a financial rut.

So here I am working for a big university and who do I randomly meet, but a young cute Russian Cardiologist who clearly has a crush on me-he has big plans for his medical career and plans to travel.

No, I have not and do not plan on cheating on my love. But, it just makes me feel very sad, confused, and slightly helpless about my situation. Can somebody please give me some advice or at least knock some sense in me?????
